Reporting Emergencies

Emergency Procedures

Emergency situations can develop at any time.  The first thing to keep in mind is to try to remain calm.  Don't panic.  Irrational action is a major cause of injury and death in emergency situations.  In most instances, a couple seconds of sound thinking will enable you to develop a reasonable course of action.  While time may be of the essence, it is just as important to take the proper action as it is to act quickly.
Telephone extensions to keep in mind when on the LCCC campus:

  • 4444 or 4053 for Campus Security
  • “0” for campus operator

If an emergency arises on campus, call Campus Security using a regular college telephone by dialing 4444 or 4053.  If you have access to a campus telephone and an immediate police, fire or ambulance response is required, dial 9-9-1-1 to make contact with Lorain County's 9-1-1 system.  If you do not have access to a regular telephone, activate any emergency phone.  Interior emergency phones are activated by pushing the large red button which will put you in touch with 9-1-1.  Again, only activate an emergency phone if police, fire or ambulance response is required. The exterior emergency phones (parking lot tower phones and building wall phones) are activated with a one touch push button operation which places the user of these phones in immediate contact with Campus Security Personnel.  Once activated, the blue strobe light atop the parking lot tower phones will glow.  When reporting an emergency situation, remember to furnish the following:

  • The nature of the emergency - a brief description
  • The location
  • Your name
  • Any additional information which would aid in handling the situation.
